We arrived there rather late at night but the chef was kind enough to cook for us. The food was delicious! We were also greeted very warmly and told we had been given an upgrade to a suite. We loved the space and the comfort. The next morning we had a hearty breakfast and visited the magnificent Benedictine monastery. I... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome. Everything was very clean. Location was right in the centre of Melk, cannot miss the monastery. We had our little dog with us and were given a room at the back of the hotel which was right next to a grassy area (which was very handy). The dinner... More

Pleasant hotel and staff right in the centre of town. Front bar is ambient for dinner or a drink while the restaurant area towards the rear is more modern and perhaps a little less cosy. Was dog friendly and we were sensibly put in a room close to the back entrance/exit, which was out on to a small green area... More

We arrived in Melk to see the Benedictine monastery( a masterpiece in many respects) and enjoyed a lunch here. Simply Outstanding lunch at 14 euro. You cannot make food or service this good without love in your heart! A worthy tribute to the town and St Benedict and the Irish Saint Koloman

Zur Post is a pleasant and perfectly located hotel in the center of Melk. The wall to wall carpeting made me sneeze, but I switched to a room with hard-wood floors and that fixed the problem. The staff was very hekpful and also provided me with a heater, since the room was cold and the weather chilly. The dinner at... More

Thank you TA! Would not have found this wonderful restaurant for lunch without the reviews. We visited the Abbey and there was a festival going on but thanks to Google Maps on my iPhone, we were able to make our way for a wunderbar lunch. Husband had bratwurst and I had grilled chicken mit pommes. The pommes (fried) were as... More

The staff here are really friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied. The restaurant was absolutely super. We would recommend this hotel and restaurant to anyone. I know it sounds a bit superficial, but this hotel had the best selection of cable channels of any hotel we stayed in on the trip. The WiFi, while free, was... More

Melk is a lovely small town and it is always worth to make a stop there if passing by. Hotel Restaurant zur Post is situated close to a small market place in a beautiful old house and as we had not visited Restaurant zur Post before we decided to have a lunch there. It was, however, a small disappointment as,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Zur Post for two nights and were not disappointed. Our room was located in the back of the hotel.....not the best view, but right next to where our car was parked. Although on the small side, the room was clean and the hotel staff were helpful. We ate at the hotel restaurant both... More

Day four of my wife's and my wedding anniversary celebratory trip to Austria entailed a drive from Vienna with a day time stop at Durnstein and then a night at Melk. We visited the Abbey before checking in (separate review), and then got to our hotel. We were not certain as to how we were going to find Hotel Restaurant... More
